Rajasthan governor induling in politics: Activist

Lucknow, Jan 8 (IANS) A civil rights activist on Friday demanded that Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh should be recalled or sacked for what he dubbed “violation of constitutional norms and involvement in politics while holding a constitutional post”.

Activist Shehzad Poonawalla sent his complaint to President Pranab Mukherjee and the ministry of home affairs to demand action against Kalyan Singh, a former Uttar Pradesh chief minister.

Poonawalla quoted news reports on the four-day visit of the 80-year-old governor in state capital Lucknow, during which Kalyan Singh allegedly talked openly in favour of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Kalyan Singh not only interacted with BJP workers and leaders openly but also gave interviews to various media organisations about the BJP’s strategy for the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections next year, he added.

Informed sources said the Congress and Bahujan Samaj Party too were thinking of complaining against the Rajasthan governor regarding his statements and conduct during his Lucknow visit.

The BJP state unit refused to comment on the issue.
